Fairish


From on Fri, 19 Mar 2004

My line is re. the John Fairrish/Isabella Wood reference.

Isabella Wood actually. Incidentally, by researching Isabella I found our ancestors correct surname. Isabella was my grt.grt.grandmother's sister & she was born in Geelong. I do have some early documents of her. She died in childbirth in her early forties, as did her mother who died 1866.

Isabella Fairish nee Wood dau. of Isabella MacIntosh-Tough (ex Scotland) & John Gray Wood (ex.Yorkshire); who had married in Tasmania in 1839 (the records there were mispelled). Isabella jnr. also had a previous marriage to Thomas Campbell Main who had died.

It also looks like John Sykes (& Susannah) are the signatures as witnesses at Isabella Fairrish (nee Wood)..'s father's 2nd marriage in Geelong in 1871. (her father being John Wood). Any stories about on John Sykes. Where was he from? What did he do?

John Sykes wed 1849 to Susannah Bowden

Interestingly John Wood was buried as a Wesleyan.

bye for now.
